Living like a well-heeled local

  • 5 of 5

I arrived at the apartment building by shuttle from CDG; the keys for entering the building and the apartment had been sent to me well before I left, together with very clear instructions. The elevator is spacious and efficient. The apartment is one flight up.

Once inside, the space and layout were ideal. The fitted kitchen is efficient and well-equipped. The living room was large with two full-sized sofas (one of which makes into a bed) and a modern television and media equipment. The instructions to operate all the options were well-explained and documented. The two windows in the living room allow plenty of natural light. Additionally there is a dining set adjacent to the kitchen service/bar and a comfortable desk/work space. If you are as "connected" as my friend and I are, rest assured there are plenty of outlets all over the apartment--but bring plug adapters if your chargers and connectivity items only have North American plugs.

The bedroom has a very comfortable bed; the closet with built in drawers and adjacent shelves was unobstructed except for the extra bedding for the sofa-bed and additional covers to accommodate varying needs for night time warmth. There was a good supply of hangers provided which made unpacking very simple.

The bathroom is divided: the main bath has a tub/shower combination and a generous counter area and sink. Again, there is plenty of storage space for all your toiletries. A hair dryer is thoughtfully provided as well. The toilet and an additional lavatory are in a separate room at the entrance to the apartment.

The full-size washer AND separate dryer make clothing care very simple. The apartment had detergent and for the washer and softener sheets for the dryer provided. The "Refresh" cycle on the dryer worked wonders with the sweaters I had packed.

Although there were only two of us in the apartment, it could have accommodated an additional person or two without a problem. It was very gratifying that Marie-Jeanne stayed in contact with us the entire time to make sure all was going well. She is a terrific hostess.

The apartment is close to restaurants and shops; It was a very easy walk to the Sully-Morland metro station which lets you stroll by your elegant neighbor, the Hôtel Lambert.

My friend and I were there for 1 week. It was a great experience. It is now my default lodging in Paris.

a delightful week

  • 5 of 5

Central location on a quiet street on the Ile St-Louis, with easy access to the city in all directions. The apartment itself is clean, convenient, attractive, and comfortable, and the owners were helpful in providing keys and information. I would definitely stay there again.

Lovely place in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four enjoyed a week in this great apartment- this was our third time renting an apartment on Ile St Louis and this was my favorite. Contact with the owner was perfect and plenty of instructions and local restaurant recommendations were provided too. We love this location - you are right in the middle of the city on quiet streets with transportation, the river and plenty to do right from your doorstep. With her referral we also arranged for a car to pick us up from the airport and take us directly to the apartment- really worth it when arriving after long flights.

The apartment itself had a spacious main room with marble tile floors, a fully stocked kitchen, plenty of linens and a modern bathroom with separate toilet room- great when you are a party of four. The teens slept on the sofa bed without any problems. Washer and dryer meant we packed less and had room for our shopping! It was very clean, and had nice light from windows and is in a secure building. We will be looking for this apartment next time we return to Paris!

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

After a busy day there's nothing better than going home. That's what it's like when you stay at this beautiful, modern apartment. Rather than going to a small hotel room in Paris, you can relax in a spacious one bedroom apartment, that is centrally located in the heart of Paris. Walk over the bridge and you are either on the left or right bank of the Seine, in close proximity to many of the city's most famous sites. However, if you just want to stay on the island, there are many food shops and excellent restaurants. The owner, Marie-Jeanne, is the perfect host, available if you need her. We have been to many VRBO properties over the last 20 years, and highly recommend this one!

Wonderful, good-sized apartment in the heart of Paris on Ile de la Cite.

  • 5 of 5

This rental was a wonderful find. It is just a couple minutes walk from Notre Dame and other major Paris attractions. Great shops and restaurants on the same street, with even more just around the corner. I would definitely stay there again.
